Mt. Hunter Ski Descent - Alaska

According to Indian legend, Mt.Hunter is the child of Denali (Dad) and Foraker (Mom). At 14,573' it has been called "the most difficult 14,000 foot peak in North America" by Jonathan Waterman. It is high, cold, steep, crevassed, avalanche prone and has no easy way down.

Lorne Glick was the intrepid Expedition Leader on this trip and was returning with John Whedon for their second attempt on this line. They were kind enough to invite Armond DuBuque and myself along and fun was had by all.
